    If you're moving away from Apple devices, or you just want to watch your iTunes videos on any device, you have to jump through some hoops, but the DRmare Windows app streamlines that process.
    Content purchased on iTunes is encoded in the M4V format and is also protected by digital rights management (DRM) technology. This makes watching videos on non-Apple devices more complicated than just copying and pasting files.
    DRmare removes DRM and converts files to a much friendlier MP4 format that can be played on a wide variety of devices. The software isn't cheap, at $44.95 for either the Windows or Mac versions, but it works well. (We tested the Windows version.)

    M4V and MP4 are really the same things and any differences have more to do with how Apple handles things rather than actually needing to convert the files. QuickTime or QuickTime based apps usually won't play an h.264 encoded video with SRT subtitles, chapter markers, AC3 audio or Apple's FairPlay DRM unless the file extension is M4V. But when it comes to play M4V on any devices unauthorized by Apple, you need to convert M4V to MP4 with TuneFab M4V Converter.
